Is there such a thing? The card is linksys's WUSB54G, which is their wireless-g usb adapter. I have a pci wireless card, but it's in another comp, and i would have to take it out and I don't know if i could find drivers for it either. It seems to me support would be better for the pci card than the usb device. If yall see a driver shoot me the url!

I did, and they have very little linux support. Most wireless drivers for linux are 3rd party.

That card uses the rtl8180 chipset. RealTek refuses to release enough info
to allow Linux developers to write drivers. So, no native Linux support.
However, you can use the Windows driver for the card with Linux. To do
this you'll need either ndiswrapper from sourceforge or DriverLoader from

http://www.linuxant.com.

The ndiswrapper is reported to work if you use the latest cvs version.
DriverLoader works(I'm using it right now) but it isn't free. It costs $20
for each card you need to support. There is a 30 free trial and the
licence lasts as long as you own the card.
